Who Will It Be?

Governor Phil Bryant will announce his appointment to replace State Auditor Stacey Pickering tomorrow morning at 10.  Let the guessing games begin.

This was decided well before Pickering resigned or more names would have leaked out. Probably another hack job like the senator appointment. Bryant is on the way out and is repaying favors.

It will be whoever Josh tells him it will be. Too much money at stake. What gravy train does Frontier want to ride for the next 16 years?

Cynical Sam said...

I hope that the replacement is certified.

I’ve heard somebody infinitely qualified that nobody has come close to guessing. Over qualified. That of course rules out any legislators.

Chris McDaniel. Easy. Solves all the GOP problems.

None of the names I’ve heard are remotely qualified.

Bryant could appoint himself. He is probably freaking out that he won’t be getting a government check in 18 months. Win-win

Hopefully someone from the Fondren

It will not be anyone qualified. It should be a top professional already in the department. Josh Gregory is bad for Mississippi. He should keep his trap shut.

It will be whoever guarantees 8 years of PSA’s to Frontier. Just like all the other “clients” of Frontier.

Its me. I can cipher. I can do my 2s, 4s and 7s. And I gradeated the 6th grade and can even write my name in cursive. YEE-DOGGY!

Trey Baxter - Forget qualifications; He got Phil's daughter on with Madison County. That goes a long way in the 'favors owed' column.

4:57, then you aren't hearing all the names.

Not that they will get the appointment, but Senator Buck Clarke and Commissioner Sam Britton are two elected officials that certainly would be qualified (and no doubt more qualified than the last four auditors.) But I doubt that Feel will consider either one, because they don't do him or Josh any good.

None of your readers seem to know. He needs to appoint someone who can stand for election next year. Who has run statewide that might want it? Lucien Smith? David McRae? Chris McDaniel?

Buck Clarke can’t do anything but gypsie math. That’s not even a serious name.

Josh Harkins. Bet the farm. Good sources.

Keeping it in Rankin County.

Luckily Phil has created so many jobs in Mississippi that he will not have any trouble finding work in the private sector.

Anonymous said...

All of the names I’ve heard are electable. None are qualified. I doubt Phil cares about either.

Anonymous said...

Credible sources are saying that it will be Brett Favre.

8:30 I hope you are being facetious.

Remember the unqualified deputy who fell into the auditor job because of Fordice? Once in the machine, people know the name. He could out Bozo the clown in there. Put the state flag in the pic with Bozo and Bozo wins.

Anonymous said...

It’s Baxter. What a legacy.

What the hell is Bryant qualified to do in the private sector? He has never once worked in th private sector!

Perkn said...

Harkins, yes that's my final answer!

Ponzipoolsa said...

I heard Lamar Adams is interested

Anonymous said...

If it’s unqualified people you need then look no further than one of the bozos at MDA. I’m sure they can spare a doofus.

Anonymous said...

I forget...help me remember. Was Bryant a CPA when he fell into this job, himself? How and why would a deputy sheriff be a certified public accountant?

Anonymous said...

Bryant wears cowboy boots. So does Cindy Smith. Baxter does not. But David Bishop does. And he's good at math. Plus he'll soon be needing a job. So there you have it.

Word got out at the auditors office. Several are preparing retirement papers. Seriously. It’s that bad. Come back here at 10:05 and tell me it’s not.

Anonymous said...

Look, feel has yet to make an appointment or a decision that has worked out very well. Look at his decision on JPS. He has no balls. Always does what's easiest. Sickening really!!!

Anonymous said...

Harkins isn't the pick guys. It'll be Michael Watson

Anonymous said...

The replacement doesn't need to be a CPA, but must have ten fingers, an abacus, and room temperature IQ.

Anonymous said...

Not Harkins,as you say 7:35 but not Watson either. A Rankin counTy lawyer, with recent campaign experience.

Louis LeFleur said...

I love all this talk of finding someone qualified and implying it should be a CPA. Has that EVER been a state auditor who was a CPA? The only one's I can think of since the 1960s at least have all been lawyers and/or politicians with no auditing experience. Granted, an attorney can do a decent auditing job at this level by just being sure government at all levels is following the laws regarding purchasing and such.

I have yet to see anyone guess the right person.....

I hope it's not J Z or Little Wayne

8:40 - if you check, its 8:04 for the win!

Anonymous said...

8:04 - Are you telling us it's Gregg Harper?

Anonymous said...

11:29, no, while that might have fit the descriptors - along with several other folks on that side of the river - White was the 'prediction'. Maybe I should have included the adjective "smart" to describe the "lawyer" hint - that would have eliminated Harper.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
